Privacy Policy

Welcome to the What's Up Dox website. We know you care how your personal information is used and shared and our Privacy Policy will explain how we process your personal information and how we protect your privacy. We appreciate your trust in us.

Essential Information We Collect and Cookies

In operating our store, it is essential for us to capture some information about your device, such as your IP address and information related to your visit when you browse our store. For example, this might include a time-stamp, the last page or product you visited, the indication that you logged in.

We do that in order to:

- remember who you are after you log in so that you do not need to authenticate at each click;

- let you browse between products without having to start back from the home page at each click;

- remember if you put something in your shopping cart before you decide to checkout;

- control that your data is processed securely; and

- monitor if our website is running with the high performance we are dedicated to providing

We call the information mentioned above “essential information” and we collect it through the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that most websites use. A website places cookies in the web browser and then reads the information collected through the cookies every time the user performs an action. Without enabling this mechanism and these kinds of cookies (first-party cookies), we could not provide you with the smooth experience that you expect while you are navigating.

Order Information You Expressly Provide

If you buy something from our store we will need more specific information about you. To fully process your order and ship the merchandise you selected, we need your personal data such as your first and last name, your email address and your shipping and billing address. We also use your contact and order information to send you communication related to the processing of your order. We will ask you to provide this information on our “checkout page” before letting you finalize your purchase with payment.

Accounts

You may wish to create an account on our site. Creating an account allows you to save your information for faster checkout, track your order, save multiple addresses, access your order history and create a wish list. By creating an account you consent to the terms of this privacy policy. You can delete your account and revoke consent at any time by emailing us at service@whatsupdox.com or calling us at 888-601-6703.

You may also use our site anonymously or checkout as a “guest”. When you check out as a guest no personal information is stored in an account and you will not have access to the features listed above. We do, however, provide you with order tracking information via email.

Partial Purchases

If you started the checkout process but then did not complete the purchase you may have provided partial information, such as your email. In that case, we might send you an email to remind you about your interest. If you do not wish to receive emails of this kind, you can click the opt-out link in the email to stop receiving communications of this type.

Reviews

Once you have completed a purchase we will send you an email with a request to review the product(s) you bought. We want to be sure that whether you love your purchase or have a complaint, you can share your opinion with other customers.

Personalization and Cookies

We also use some specific information related to your visit, such as the timestamp of your visit, the page or the product you viewed, where you are coming from (if you came to our store because you clicked on an advertisement or you just opened our direct link). This is very similar to the “essential information,” but we use it to provide you with a personalized experience. The information on your visit provides us with insights on your interests and allows us to send you relevant communications. We capture this information through cookies called a "beacon".

Most browsers include in the toolbar help section instructions on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies.

If you subscribe to receive emails from What’s Up Dox we will use data about your visit and orders to send you personalized emails. This data is processed to send you relevant emails about the things you are most interested in.

We also personalize our online marketing using your data to help create ads on social media websites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Other Uses of Personal Data

We use personal data to gain analytical insights to browsing and purchase behavior. To enable this we use Google Analytics and Facebook Analytics to process the data on our behalf. Your data is shared only so they can provide the service we have contracted with them, and may not be shared for any other reason.

How We Process Your Information

Our website is hosted by an external provider, Big Commerce. Big Commerce is based in the US and is a participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and committed to providing best-in-class service and data protection.

Payments

Our Store is PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant and when you choose a direct payment gateway (i.e. credit card or PayPal) to complete your purchase your credit card data is encrypted through PCI-DSS. We use two accredited payment gateways: Intuit Merchant Services and PayPal for processing payments. All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
